Low Cost Carrier
International and Domestic
In service


VivaAerobus launched its first services in Nov-2006. The Mexican low-cost carrier operates from its main base at Monterrey Escobedo International Airport providing domestic services to Mexican Tier I cities and leisure destinations as well as to the US. The carrier also operates to other smaller regional centres. VivaAerobus was formed as a result of a strategic alliance between Grupo IAMSA, one of Mexico’s leading bus transportation providers and Irelandia Aviation, the investment vehicle of the Ryan family- founders of Ryanair. Grupo IAMSA secured Irelandia's 49% stake in VivaAerobus in 2016. Irelandia, formerly a minority stake holder in VivaAerobus, involved in starting sister carrier, VivaColombia, with both carriers forming part of multinational airline group; Grupo Viva. The airline concluded its fleet modernisation plan, phasing out its last Boeing 737-300 on 28-Oct-2016 and transitioned to an all A320 fleet.
